Volvo Construction Equipment Europe and Perlini extend their distribution agreement to Great Britain

The Volvo CE dealerships in Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Ireland, Moldavia, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia were the first to operate under the European umbrella agreement, and now the partnership extends to the company-owned dealership in Great Britain.

'We are delighted to be able to announce this here at Hillhead 2010', said Nick Rose, responsible for business development in Volvo CE Europe, 'as the Perlini products have been proven to plug the gap in the Volvo range to allow our distribution network to offer complete solutions to our quarrying and aggregate customers.'

Maurizio Perlini, responsible for Perlini’s commercial affairs, agreed: 'This is a win-win situation for Perlini, Volvo and our customers.  From our point of view we now have a much wider access to the British market, and customers can now take advantage of an established and comprehensive after sales support network.

'We see this as a very positive step forward, endorsing our desire to be a Total Solutions provider for customers in our market,' said managing director Val Ledden. 'Adding the range of Perlini rigid trucks to our portfolio gives us the opportunity of offering a one stop shop to customers where rigid haulers are required together with packages of other Volvo equipment such as our larger wheeled loaders and excavators. Equally, this arrangement offers a realistic opportunity especially for customers in the extractive industry today, to consider an alternative, proven quality marque of truck backed by the strength of the Volvo brand, our core values and fully accredited and integrated management system'.

There are currently four models of rigid hauler manufactured by Perlini which will be available in Great Britain and these are the DP405, DP605, DP705 & DP905 ranging between 40 to 100 tonnes payload capacity. Under the agreement, these models do not become part of the Volvo range and retain their white livery, branding etc. A full after market support for the trucks will be provided by Volvo Construction Equipment’s comprehensive network of customer support centres, mobile and home based mobile engineers and the parts distribution network.
